5.0 out of 5 stars WELCOME BACK TO A HOLLYWOOD LEGEND, December 22, 2007
This review is from: Only the Lonely (DVD)
After an absence of 20 years, the great Maureen O'Hara returns as a feisty Irish mother who loves to give her policeman son (John Candy) a guilt trip. The movie is funny despite some ethnic slurs and O'Hara steals the movie. Upon her return to Tinseltown after the death of her husband, she was asked to play Rose Muldoon. She took one look at Candy and said "OK, I'll play his mother".

Another icon Anthony Quinn plays the lovelorn neighbor. His scenes with O'Hara are classic. Two tremendous pros giving lessons in acting and their chemistry is perfect.

Candy and Ally Sheedy are newcomers compared to O'Hara and Quinn and this humorous and entertaining movie gives them the chance to work with two of filmdom's greats and both are wonderful in their roles.

But this is O'Hara's movie. She never resorts to stereotype and her strong finish only reaffirms the statement "welcome back Ms. O'Hara".

Let's hope to see more of this wonderful actress on celluloid.
